Local Veterans Being Honored Before Veterans Day

Veterans Day isn’t until Sunday but many are honoring all who served early.

Jerome Burckhard served in the American Legion from 1960 to 1963.

He’s one of the Veterans that was honored during today’s ceremony and he says that it’s nice to be reminded that people appreciate your service.

Not only did the public show their support – airmen and women that are currently serving also came.

“Well it gives me a real good feeling for one thing. I mean I went into the military to serve my country and that gives you a good feeling,” said Jerome Burckhard, Veteran.

The ceremony included a presentation of the flags and a prayer from a Vietnam Veteran.
